I have been teaching for 27 years, 8 years in a private school and 19 years in my present public school district. In my teaching journey, I have taught Art Education to grades K to 5, 4th grade, and 1st grade. A few of the years in 1st grade were in a literacy intervention class which I enjoyed immensely. 1st grade has been the most rewarding experience of my career.
